You'll have em dialed in in no time

If you do this talk to the person first and get their permission. The last thing I want while going for a jump is to hear someone anywhere near me.

If the jump is correctly built then overshooting a 25-35ft jump by 10ft shouldn't be anything to worry about. You learn to judge speed through expirience.

Mystery2many When you hit these jumps, what are you thinking at the time? Board grab? Style? Kick out? A spin? Getting air?

If your to the level of hitting these size jumps then hit a few with straight air with an absorbent tucked stance and find your sweet spot. If your not ready, then work your way up and practice will do the rest. Don't rush progress. But definitely challenge yourself.

And learning how to stomp flat landings is essential too, because you will overshoot a jump every now and then.

yea if its your first time on that jump just stand at the top of the drop in and watch a few people do it. just dont stand in the middle of the drop in looking like you're wanting to go next, you'll cause a queue of people all standing there waiting)

eli783 Only thing that works for me is just watching a few ppl hit. After that I kind of just get a feeling and go for it. You obviously have no fear of the actual jump and if your straight up overshooting that much, just speed check a lil right before your takeoff.

How in the hell do you judge speed for jumps?

So I'm mostly into hitting powder cliffs and drops out of bounds but occasionally make a few laps through the park. I've always had a hard time judging the speed for bigger jumps the first few times and usually overshoot it the first time, and knuckle the second time, which hurts... I've broken a hip after overshooting a booter and dislocated my elbow a couple weeks ago when i cased it. I'd say the jumps range from 25-35 feet from take off to landing.

Btw, when i say overshoot the landing, i mean by like at least 10+ feet... sometimes to flat. i dont get it, maybe i should stick to rocks.
